People with rickets.
An auld woman throwing a pail of freezing cold water over two "locked" dogs.
Bunnets.
Street games...Kerby,Kick the can,Chinks,Jorries,Best man's fall etc...
Bogies.
Middens...especially of the "lucky" variety.
Coal bunkers.
Windae hingers.
Glesga keelies with huge neck lumps
A pair of tights with two tennis balls inside hanging from overhead wires.
Someone walking down your street shouting "Toffee Appells".
Or hawkers in general.



Any mair fur any mair?

Thank fuxxx you dont see anything like that now...although i had forgotten about the tights with the balls...youve taken me back to the seventies...   There are enough tossers and enough situations nowadays that the point you have raised could be asked in twenty years from now...main difference {in my opinion} is then...people had fxxx all and access to nothing except family who also usualy also had nowt.. Nowadays ..scuzzballs rule  ,shell suits,working aint worth it,drugs ,X factor ,no respect for authority ,political correctness..faint hearted liberals who think they can solve promblems with a fur glove..could rant all night..but wont..will post some new past presents tomorrow...night all
